owen, we now point you to the "what to do when it doesn't work" thread, somewheres hereabouts. go, follow, answer, return.
if I may, I'd advise you also look for the thread (and download the program) for diy layout creator, by bancika, a member here. it is pretty much our unofficial standard for layout diagrams, and has provision for breadboard layouts. and all the colours you can think of. (my layouts tend to look like tetris games, so they tell me.)
